EDIT: Mini bio added
Nother new OC~ Her name is Kato Tseten, and she's a Shinigami, the former captain of division 12 and --'s predecessor, to be specific. She's now come out of retirement for the shadow war, and is a co-lieutenant of division 9 (former 12).
During her captaincy (specifically, at the end of it), was the first quincy blood war, and shinigami numbers were dwindling fast. Kato and her lieutenant, on top of their other duties, were working out a way to help soul society residents get pregnant with children guaranteed to be Shinigami. A fertility treatment, basically. Of course, even though Kato was never a very empathetic or caring individual, as a scientist she would never put out a drug without clinical testing... so she decided to test it on herself fist. And she got pregnant... with quints.
The drug basically made her absorb a mix of bits of spiritual stuff from random people, mixing it with her own to make babies. (okay it's a little more scientific than that but I'm tired
). So the round of quints forced her to step down from her captain position and have the kids, taking a purly research role instead. After the quints were born, it was only a year before the drug kicked in again and Kato ended up pregnant with twins. Four years later saw another pregnancy, triplets, all while Kato worked frantically to stop the drug's effects, finally resorting to getting a hysterectomy after the triplets were born.
With ten kids to raise as a single mother, Kato essentially had to retire from active duty and work altogether, though the Sereitei does give her a huge paycheck every month for having had all these kids in the line of duty. Though she saw it just as that at first, she did grow to love her kids, and (it tool a looong time and five kids) eventually became a pretty great parent.
Now that all of her kids are grown up and active duty, she had to take even longer for her body to recover from the ridiculous onslaught of pregnancies and the experiments she performed on herself to try and stop them. She rejoined as limited duty during Aizen's war, and has since returned to full active duty, taking a lieutenant spot in division 9.
She hasn't escaped the hold of the drug yet, and it actually causes her to regrow her uterus slowly. She's had to remove it twice, and the surgery is now necessary every three years. If she lets it go unchecked, she is guaranteed to get pregnant again. The drug will also keep her from ever having a boyfriend's actual biological child. (She definitely made a big sacrifice for science)
ye anyway saw aww to Kato and her army of children haha

Brief personality: Kato is a quiet, introspective individual that doesn't care much for large crowds, or interacting with groups of people in general. Kato prefers quiet, and the meditative quality of work and research. She is a highly intelligent individual, and years of never really knowing how to 'dumb down' her language has made her simply quiet, unless she is speaking with her scientific peers. She has always been quite serious and motivated, and highly curious about the world, and often withdraws into herself to think and reflect. She never expected, or really wanted, a family to distract her from her research, but her ten kids did grow on her and she is a rather overprotective and attentive mother. This trait has leaked a bit into her work life; she can act quite 'motherly' to her subordinates. Though her kids have made her more social, she still prefers to be quiet, and is really rather socially awkward, never knowing quite what to say to newcomers or strangers. This often makes her seem cold or aloof, but in reality she just doesn't really know how to have a normal conversation. She is endlessly patient thanks to her kids, and it takes a lot to really irritate her. Her situation has also made her lose a bit of empathy, and she usually is harsh on subordinates that don't operate on task and make up excuses. She also has a golden bullshit detector.
There is one sore topic that can piss her off, and that's asking about the drug or her pregnancies in a non-clinical environment. This aspect of her has also completely prevented her from seeking out a romantic companion, knowing they'd never want the baggage she comes with.
